Seoul resumes propaganda broadcasts after more North Korean balloon launches

National Security Council authorized loudspeaker use near border after DPRK sent some 330 balloons south on Saturday

South Korea has carried out its first propaganda loudspeaker broadcast directed at North Korea in six years after Pyongyang sent over 300 trash-filled balloons across the border.

Seoul’s Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) announced in a press release that the military conducted the broadcast on Sunday afternoon in response to North Korea’s “despicable acts” and added that it may carry out additional broadcasts depending on Pyongyang’s response.
